The Wax of our Being



The Wax of our Being

schedules arise within
time's seeming presence..
placed with  projections
of time's spacial future..

our freedom is at stake
as the schedule separates
and controls..

until we recognize
these thoughts and
projections are all
made of the
Wax of our Being...

Thirst...Mary Oliver


















"Thirst" by Mary Oliver

Another morning and I wake with thirst
for the goodness I do not have. I walk
out to the pond and all the way God has
given us such beautiful lessons. Oh Lord,
I was never a quick scholar but sulked
and hunched over my books past the hour
and the bell; grant me, in your mercy,
a little more time. Love for the earth
and love for you are having such a long
conversation in my heart. Who knows what
will finally happen or where I will be sent,
yet already I have given a great many things
away, expecting to be told to pack nothing,
except the prayers which, with this thirst,
I am slowy learning.

— Mary Oliver, Thirst

My name is Legion











My name is Legion
for we are many..
Many of my names are yours
and yours mine..
We live with clouded visions
named by outworn beliefs
and mistaken identities..
We desperately need
to  pierce the clouds
to discover the glowing
of  peace and grace lying
hidden behind our names..
Those pigs might assist...!

Alpha and Omega






Alpha and Omega

beginnings 
and endings
mark our momentary
thoughts and perceptions..
passing through
we observe these
temporary visitations..

but who among us
asks of the medium
for these passages.?
whatever the medium
it seems to be
 quietly expressing
 what is permanent..

and..
 noticing our medium
yields eternal benefit:
experiencing ourselves 
as peace and grace...



Beauty cannot be seen, but all perceptions shine with it. Love cannot be felt, but all feelings are made of it. Truth cannot be known, but all thoughts express it.

Ashes












Ashes

thoughts outworn
beliefs outworn
paradigms outworn
these are kindling
for a fire at the 
core of our being..
the fire is ever lit
and ready for
burning to ashes
all that lingers 
too long
cluttering our
knowing of 
who we are...

The Daily Quote from Rupert Spira, 19th June 2019:
Just as one sun is reflected in numerous puddles, each showing a separate image of the same sun, so the unlimited and ever-present light of pure Knowing is reflected in seven billion minds as the feeling ‘I am’, giving rise to the appearance of seven billion selves.

Lethe



Lethe


Yes..Lethe
the river of forgetfulness
from the land of myth..
Today it is a
poetic name for our
 forgetfulness at birth
with a life-long wish
to remember our
 inner teacher..
We may have
many teachers which
help and hinder..
unpredictable
 the effect of either..
We await 
an experience simple
which clears final brush
and we remember
the teacher long hidden
in our forgetfulness...
